We-research': Adopting a wiki to support the processes of collaborative research among a team of international researchers Young S.
Perez J.
International Journal of Music Education English 2012 This article discusses the adoption of a wiki to support the processes of collaborative research between members of an international team involved in the project MyPlace: MyMusic. The focus is on how new technological communications, here specifically the wiki, can enable and transform the methods and processes of research. We propose two main aspects the use of the wiki can bring to research in music education: to facilitate multi-modal research processes and to promote research as a collective rather than individual practice. Both aspects, we argue, can extend the potential for music education research and subvert some of the limiting hierarchical traditions of academic research. This shift to a networked, multi-modal research method calls for new skills: technological, personal and social. Some analytical models of networked processes by other authors provide illuminative templates and these are introduced. The article maintains a balanced view, describing potential advantages alongside possible pitfalls. 0 0
Evaluation of OML and AERMOD Olesen H.R.
Berkowicz R.
Lofstrom P.
International Journal of Environment and Pollution English 2011 Results from an evaluation of three dispersion models are presented: the currently operational OML model, a new, improved 'Research Version' of OML, and the US AERMOD model. The evaluation is based on the Prairie Grass data set. For these data the OML Research Version appears superior to the other two models. Further, the paper discusses problems and pitfalls of the Prairie Grass data set. The criteria for exclusion of data have tremendous impact on evaluation metrics. A new Wiki on Atmospheric Dispersion has the potential to become a very useful focal point to pool and communicate experiences on data sets such as Prairie Grass. Copyright 0 0
Posibilidades de Wikipedia en la docencia universitaria: elaboración colaborativa de conocimiento Tomás Saorín-Pérez

IBERSID Spanish 2011 A guide for Wikipedia student edition as a collaborative active learning activity is presented. Whereas the use of wikis in the classroom is widely documented, the educational possibilities of Wikipedia itself are not so much. We offer a classification of participatory activities suitable for being carried out by the students in the development of the curricular contents. One of the most relevant aspects is the transformation of the critical and distrustful speech towards the Wikipedia in a direct knowledge of its scope, process of production and systems of quality control. In addition, it is a good opportunity to improve a widespread source of information among university undergraduates that has a real impact and for the students to develop a more critical and active use of information sources. 0 2
"What I know is...": Establishing credibility on wikipedia talk pages Meghan Oxley

WikiSym 2010 English 2010 This poster presents a new theoretical framework and research method for studying the relationship between specific types of authority claims and the attempts of contributors to establish credibility in online, collaborative environments. We describe a content analysis method for coding authority claims based on linguistic and rhetorical cues in naturally occurring, text-based discourse. We present results from a preliminary analysis of a sample of Wikipedia talk page discussions focused on recent news events. This method provides a novel framework for capturing and understanding these persuasion-oriented behaviors, and shows potential as a tool for online communication research, including automated text analysis using trained natural language processing systems. 0 0
Augmented social cognition: Using social web technology to enhance the ability of groups to remember, think, and reason Chi E.H. SIGMOD-PODS'09 - Proceedings of the International Conference on Management of Data and 28th Symposium on Principles of Database Systems English 2009 We are experiencing a new Social Web, where people share, communicate, commiserate, and conflict with each other. As evidenced by systems like Wikipedia, twitter, and, these environments are turning people into social information foragers and sharers. Groups interact to resolve conflicts and jointly make sense of topic areas from "Obama vs. Clinton" to "Islam." PARC's Augmented Social Cognition researchers -- who come from cognitive psychology, computer science, HCI, CSCW, and other disciplines -- focus on understanding how to "enhance a group of people's ability to remember, think, and reason". Through Social Web systems like social bookmarking sites, blogs, Wikis, and more, we can finally study, in detail, these types of enhancements on a very large scale. Here we summarize recent work and early findings such as: (1) how conflict and coordination have played out in Wikipedia, and how social transparency might affect reader trust; (2) how decreasing interaction costs might change participation in social tagging systems; and (3) how computation can help organize usergenerated content and metadata. 0 0
